Last Saturday, the former India captain complained of dizziness and then suffered the blackout just after he had returned from the gym. He was immediately rushed to the city’s Woodlands Multispeciality Hospital. Ganguly had undergone a successful angioplasty on Saturday evening.

The BCCI chief, who was diagnosed with three blocked coronary arteries after which a stent was inserted in one to remove the blockage, needs to undergo “another angioplasty for which he has to return to the hospital after two weeks or a time when he feels comfortable”, a senior doctor of Woodlands Hospital said.

Dr. Rupali Basu, MD, and CEO of Woodlands Hospital, on Tuesday, said the former captain will be monitored at home on a daily basis after being discharged.
